IERRT plans revised following public consultation

The Immingham Eastern Roll-on Roll-off Terminal plans have been revised following a public  consultation earlier this year.

As a result of the responses and representations that Associated British Ports (ABP) has  received to date, together with the commissioned navigation simulation, it has been decided  to reduce the size and scale of the scheme.

Simon Bird, Director in the Humber, said: “The redesigned proposals are as a direct result of  the very helpful responses and representations that ABP received during the consultation  process from regulators, stakeholders and the public.” 

The changes that ABP proposes to make as it continues to work on the application are as  follows: 

• A reduction in the number of berths from four to three by removing the berth nearest  

to the shore from the scheme 

• A consequent reduction in the size of the required dredged berth pocket 

• The removal of one berth meaning there will be a reduction in vehicular throughput 

which enables ABP to remove the Eastern Trailer Park Area from the scheme. 

A Development Consent Order (DCO) will be submitted in summer 2022. 

All these changes are explained in more detail on ABP’s IERRT project website
